-Lisa- thanks for the tip ill give a try to that "Weleda Skin Food" sounds fantastic!!!!Specially for winter purposes when i need an extra help... specially until the skin get used to the change of season.

My lips get very dry these time of the year... a lip balm is more than a must... ouchie!

try taking murad's 'wet suit'
and dont use moisturizers with humectants because they draw water from the skin

I always keep some Blistex nearby, good for both hands and lips. If I don't use anything on my lips in the winter they get dry and bleeding.

when it got colder my skin (body) became terribly dry and irritable, also my lips get so dry even if I use lipbalm like every 15 minutes...
I add few drops of jojoba oil into my body lotion and it seems to help

As well as my usual job at the residential home, I am also helping out at a cattery three mornings a week. I am outdoors a lot, cleaning out the litter trays in the outdoor runs and my skin is like sandpaper as a result. I am using loads more moisturiser and hand cream than usual and my skin just drinks it up. Its also drying my hair too, so am using more conditioner as well.

I'm back in the very cold Lithuania where temperature can be very low, like -18. Such cold weather dries out my skin but I always use loads of Dr Hauschka Rose Cream and it seems to be working.
My hair gets oily fast too, but not sure what to do about it except wash it every day...

My forehead (lol!) and lips are really really dry right now. A bit of Canoderm cream (I usually wear Dermalogica's Skin smoothing) in my face and Carmex on my lips works wonders.

Also wind burn is a big thing when it's blowing in your face, it makes mine really red and it sort of looks like sunburn

^^If I ever get that (real red skin in appearance) I apply La Prairie Cellular Nurturing Anti-Redness Cream. Which I use very very sparingly since the company is discontinuing it.

Rose oil at night sounds nice, from Decleor. I also like Darphin's complexes/oils.

For body I just use Eucerin Calming Creme on wet skin for sure, it takes a good 10-15 mins to soak in and absorb, but its the best way to do it.

It's freezing outside...minus 10 degrees Celsius in the daytime. And my skin HURTS. No matter how I cleanse my face or how much moisturizer/oil I put on, nothing helps.

I think the cold is giving me rashes - I have dry itchy spots all over my body! Eww.
